For many across the nation, September marks a turning of the pages. For kids of all ages, the month is synonymous with back-to-school season. Young grandkids may start showing you drawings and art creations from their time at school while older teens may be talking about football games and the approach of homecoming.
For those not returning to school, September often heralds the coming of autumn; by later in the month, the leaves around Creve Couer may even start to change and fall, and weather can begin turning brisk at a moment's notice.
Into all this change, you have the opportunity to effect something positive. September is National Courtesy Month, a time to remember your manners and show them to others to create an even more positive environment in our assisted living community. We're not saying our residents are lacking manners, but life can get busy or stressful for us all, and sometimes it's hard to remember to take a moment to smile or greet others.
Here are a few tiny habits to practice during National Courtesy Month and throughout the rest of the year.
While Miss Manners might have made courtesy out to be something you do for the sake of polite society and others, you can see from the list above that small acts of kindness have their own reward. Take some time to consider how you can include more courtesy in your day to positively impact the assisted living community at Creve Couer and your own life.
